Fullerenes, novel forms of super carbonaceous materials are subject of significant research for their utilization in an increasing number of applications like petrochemical, energy, transportation, automotive, aerospace, defence, sporting goods and infrastructure development. In particular, carbon nanotubes and graphene are some of the common types of fullerenes that offer unique combinations of superlative chemical and physical properties. This keynote speech will look into how a simple chemical manipulation at nano-scale of a superlative chicken wire structure of graphene can be exploited to address major engineering challenges we are now encountering in the development of subsea engineering products used for oil/ gas applications. Substituting monolithic materials with nanofiller reinforced composites would not just bring major performance uplift but also significant reduction in manufacturing and related economics. However, there are several key challenges prior to this forthcoming substitution which will be detailed in this work.
